OWINGS MILLS, Md., Sept. 22 (UPI) -- The Baltimore Ravens disclosed Tuesday they traded linebacker Prescott Burgess to the New England Patriots and signed tight end Tony Curtis.

Baltimore received a conditional seventh-round draft pick from New England in exchange for Burgess.

Curtis was released by Philadelphia at the conclusion of the pre-season. He played in all 16 regular-season games in 2008 while a member of the Dallas Cowboys and made eight catches for 32 yards.

In 36 games with Dallas, Curtis had 11 receptions for 50 yards and three touchdowns.
